Praying in the Holy Spirit
Scripture reading for November 28th: Jude, Psalm 103-104, Proverbs 22
Key Scriptures: Jude 17-21 “But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. They said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.”
The last days would be marked by scoffers and divisive people. These people would be devoid of the Holy Spirit and led only by their fleshly passions and selfishness. Believers must beware and keep themselves in the love of God and follow Jesus by faith. This requires the Helper, the Holy Spirit, to help us pray through the many traps and snares. The reward for the faithful is out of this world!
Faith Confession: Lord, fill me fresh today with the Holy Spirit and empower my prayers as I am living in the last days and many scoffers are mocking God and His Word. I look forward to living with You for ever and ever!
Proverbs 22:3-4 “The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it. The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.”
